Allosaurus is among the most recognizable of the American dinosaur genera. It's slender build and feirce looking skull,with bony ornamentation above it's eyes, give it a distinctly menacing appearance. The lower jaws are relatively thin when compared with the upper and many scientists believe that it would have used it's strong neck and ferocious upper jaw in a hatchet-like attack when hunting prey. Three fingered-hands with large claws add to the terrifying effect, making allosaurus one of the scariest dinosaurs in our collection. Our specimen measures 22 feet long and is posed with it's head low enough for visitors to 'look it in the eye'. Allosaurus was a predator at the top of it's food chain in ancient Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah where it likely fed upon herbivorous dinosaurs like Stegosaurus. Our mount is often displayed along with the panel mounted skeleton of a dead Stegosaurus stenops to recreate a feeding scene.
